After Christmas 'wolf hunting contest' to give prizes for killing wolves

See also

“Just when we thought things could not get more despicable…,” says Jamie Rappaport Clark of Defenders of Wildlife.

A “hunters’ rights organization” has just scheduled a wolf-killing competition for the week after Christmas, according to Clark. Prizes will be awarded for such hunting objectives as killing the largest wolf and the most female coyotes.

There’s even a “youth division” prize for children as young as 10 to take part in the bloodshed!

Already, 154 wolves have been killed in Idaho since hunting season began on August 30. This barbaric competitive slaughter promises to raise that number even higher.

Organizers of this so-called wolf derby admit that one purpose of the event is to show the world that no one can stop them from killing wolves – not you, not me, and especially not the federal government. It’s a horrific demonstration of what happens when wolves are prematurely stripped of Endangered Species Act protection.

And it’s a horrifying preview of more slaughters to come if the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) moves forward with their proposal to delist nearly all gray wolves in the Lower 48.

Wolves need emergency help. Please tell the FWS that wolves need to stay protected.
